  • Any additional products, electrical equipment or infrastructure not listed on the Expression of Interest must be approved by the Site Manager before it can be brought on site.
  • The positioning of each stall sits with the Site Management Team and past involvement at the festival will not influence this year’s site allocation.

  • As an outdoor festival, we suggest 50kg per leg is a sufficient weight, however the responsibility for ensuring that the marquee is safe and secure lies with the stallholder. Weights will be available to hire at a cost.
  • All equipment (except coolrooms) must fit into your selected stall size. Coolrooms may not be located next to the stall, however the Site Management team will endeavour to give the most direct access.
